My Brothers And Sisters is a Not-For-Profit Community Outreach Program committed to empowering the youth of today to be the leaders of tomorrow. Our programs and activities incorporate various seminars, workshops, and employment initiatives as vehicles to promote positive self image, commitment to family, ethics and education that will enable them to be productive citizens in society. The targeted age group are youth 9 to 18 with emphasis placed on those in the Juvenile Justice System; however, our program also includes working with at-risk youth who have never entered, and want to stay out of, the system. Our goal is to deter the youth from being placed in transitional programs that would cause them to be sent away from home. Each year we host family oriented events designed to bridge the divide between children and their parents. Our flagship event, Daddy & Daughter Date Night, was developed to strengthen the bond between fathers (or father-figures) and their daughters. Mother and Son Night Out was birthed from the revelation that mothers want that same type of positive bond with their sons. Our firm belief is that it takes a village to raise a child, and to that effect, we invite a variety of motivational speakers, community leaders and clergy to encourage, motivate and challenge each family member to foster positive relationships with each other. My Brothers And Sisters also facilitates youth mentoring programs designed to teach social skills, self respect and respect for others. The ultimate goal is to have a facility that is able to house at-risk juveniles and provide mentoring and educational programs as an alternative to their introduction to the Juvenile Justice System.
Kimberly Anderson-Cox - Executive Director
Kimberly Cox has a sincere passion to help others, especially the youth. She experienced a great amount or problems growing up, many of which made her a stronger person and fueled her passion to help others. At the age of seven, her parents divorced. Her father served in the Armed Forces and was only able to spend very little time with her during her adolescent years. Her mother suffered from an addiction and was in and out of her life for many years. As a result, Kimberly became the “Mother-Figure” for her younger siblings. These experiences are what made her realize that parental and familial relationships are a necessity. They are needed more now than ever.
Kim Cox currently works as a Corrections Officer. As such, she has experienced first-hand the strain that is placed on families when a parent is absent from the home. Her organization, My Brothers And Sisters, is the culmination of her vision to serve as a mediator for the youth in her community. She informs others it is her GOD-given mission to aid at-risk juveniles so that they aren’t sent off to juvenile detention facilities that never deal with the underlying issues these youth are facing. My Brothers And Sisters has many community outreach segments that allow adolescents to obtain counseling and mentoring as well as many fun-filled, family focused events in which they can take part. In 2012, Kim Stepped out on faith and hosted her first event an event, “Daddy’s & Daughter’s Date Night.” This event allowed fathers spend a special evening with their daughters full of good food, fun and, most importantly, making the most of the time to strengthen the special bond between them.
Kim Cox was born and raised in Pensacola, Florida. She attended and graduated from Escambia High School in 1993. She continued her education by attending Pensacola Junior College (now Pensacola State College) where she earned her Associate of Science degree in Criminal Justice and Troy State University from which she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. Kim is married to her husband of 14 years and they share four children. She is the oldest child born to her parents and also the oldest grandchild. She was practically raised by her grandparents who kept her in church. Kimberly also states with pride that her granddad was an awesome quartet singer.
